This study will compare pain (primary end-point) and local metastatic tumor control (secondary end-point) after dose-intensified image-guided fractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for painful mass-type spinal metastases versus conventional radiation therapy.
The first aim of this study is to investigate the frequency and severity of a specific pathological metabolic pattern, mitochondrial dysfunction, of the brain in comatose patients under neurocritical care. This pattern is recognized as a complication after compromised blood flow to the brain and may be amenable to treatment. The other main aim of this study is to correlate patterns of metabolites between brain and jugular venous blood. It is probable but not proven that jugular...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the modulatory effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on functional connectivity with the insula. Functional connectivity (FC) measures the interaction between brain regions, and recent neuroimaging studies have used FC to investigate how addiction affects FC among pertinent brain regions. rTMS, which can excite cortical neurons, has shown promise as a method to manipulate brain connectivity and could be used t...
Glioblastomas, the most frequent malignant brain tumor in adults, are widespread in the brain, despite their discrete appearance on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). While this tumor tends to spread widely in the brain, unlike other tumors of the body, it rarely metastasizes, or spreads, to other organs. Approximately 10 percent of patients with glioblastoma develop metastatic disease after radiation or brain surgery. In the absence of radiation o...
Evaluation of the impact (on survival and other outcomes) of implementing the Brain Trauma Foundation/National Association of EMS Physicians Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) guidelines in the prehospital EMS systems throughout the state of Arizona.
Brain bleed in premature infants damages the brain and survivors suffer from cerebral palsy (weakness in the extremities), cognitive deficits, and neurobehavioral disorders. In this clinical trial, investigators will test whether thyroxine (hormone from thyroid gland) treatment in premature infants with moderate-to-large brain bleeds show recovery in the brain structure on MRI evaluation at the time of discharge (36 weeks) and neurodevelopmental improvement at 2 years of age.
In previous studies exploring specific sequences of MRI (susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) and arterial spin labeling (ASL)), the investigators have shown the great sensibility of these MRI sequences to detect arteriovenous shunts, compared to angiography imaging (static or dynamic). This prospective study aims to compare multisequence MRI to brain arteriography imaging in patients undergoing brain arteriovenous malformations embolization.
Alzheimer's disease is a medical illness that damages the brain and causes problems with memory, mood and behavior. A substance called acetylcholine (ACh), which is naturally produced in the body, plays an important role in the normal functioning of the brain. In subjects with Alzheimer's disease, the level of ACh is greatly reduced. Currently, there are three commonly prescribed drugs used for treating the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease by helping to maintain the level of ACh...
There is currently a shortage of organ in France, for patients with chronic diseases who are on the waiting list for an organ. The first source of organ donor in France is patients with brain death. 58% of patients in brain death are patients with a severe stroke ( ischemic or hemorrhagic). In order to identify which patient with a severe stroke and with unfavorable prognosis who can evolve to brain death, we have conducted a retrospective study in Lorrain, in France, and we ha...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving temozolomide together with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving temozolomide together with radiation therapy works in treating patients with low-grade gliomas.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of brain training in a Virtual Reality set up in neurotypical populations as well as in the traumatic brain injury population.
Research studies in stuttering have shown that activity patterns in certain brain areas differ in people who stutter compared to people who do not stutter when speaking. The purpose of this study is to investigate how mild, non-invasive brain stimulation applied consecutively for five days affects speech relevant brain areas, which may in turn affect speech fluency and speaking-related brain activity in people who stutter.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is the gold standard treatment for Essential Tremor (ET). ET is a movement disorder which causes the arms, feet, fingers, head or voice to involuntarily shake. The DBS surgical procedure involves implanting an electrode deep within the brain which blocks damaging signals that cause the tremor. Essential Voice Tremor (EVT) is the vocal manifestation of ET and a number of individuals have both ET and EVT, and when these patients are implanted for thei...
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate brain whether ADHD represents a disruption or a delay of brain development. Children and adolescents both with and without ADHD are asked to participate in several MRI sessions, two years apart. This will allow us to chart brain development over time, both in typical development and ADHD, and therefore to address whether ADHD represents a disruption or a delay of typical brain development.
Brain activity can be inferred from brain waves that can be observed using a technology known as the Electroencephalogram (EEG). Anesthetic drugs change these EEG patterns. A patient's state of consciousness during general anesthesia is closely related to their EEG brain wave patterns, and these patterns are visible using existing EEG monitors that are readily available in the operating room. However, currently, most anesthesiologists do not use EEG brain monitors in their rout...
The purpose of this study is to test the belief that specific areas of the brain are connected differently in blind patients than patients with sight. In addition, the study will examine the different anatomical connections between brain areas of patients who became blind early in life versus patients who became blind later.
Primary lung cancer is one of the most common malignancies in China, with 57 percent of patients being diagnosed at advanced stage. At present, advanced lung cancer has entered the era of precise treatment. So it is very important to determine the gene mutation status of the tumor and prescribe drugs at the targets. Liquid biopsy is a suitable alternative when tumor tissues are difficult to obtain. Liquid biopsy technique refers to the use of human body fluid as a sample source...
Many people who have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) - usually from a blow to the head such as in a vehicle collision or in a fall do not survive or, if they do, suffer from long-term disability. Previous studies have shown that about 1,000 people in Australia and New Zealand suffer a moderate or severe TBI every year. With current best available treatment and therapies many of these patients sustain loss of brain function and long term disability in varying degrees. When...
The purpose of this research is to determine whether there is more extensive inflammation in the brain of people with clinical evidence of neuropsychiatric syndromes, such as mood disorder, chronic pain syndrome, dementia, traumatic brain injury, or substance abuse. The research will also explore whether there is more inflammation in patients with more neuropsychiatric symptoms. Inflammation in the brain will identified by using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with the radio...
Despite many available treatments, there are patients with major depression who remain treatment refractory and chronically disabled. For these severely ill patients, several neurosurgical procedures are available where brain lesions are made that interrupt white matter tracts linking orbital frontal cortex to the striatum, resulting in significant therapeutic benefit for many patients. In this study, we will test the safety and efficacy of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)--a rever...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers radiation directly to the area where a tumor was surgically removed may kill any remaining tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well proton beam radiation therapy works in treating young patients who have undergone biopsy or surgery for medulloblastoma or pineoblastoma.
Brain injured patients are at high risk for forming blood clots in the legs and lungs. For non-brain injured trauma patients, we decrease the chances of these blood clots forming by placing the patients on a low dose of the blood thinner enoxaparin. Starting patients with a brain injury on the blood thinner is problematic, however, as this can theoretically cause the brain injury to worsen. Trauma surgeons wait a variable period of time before starting this blood thinner becaus...
We will utilize a set of imaging modalities including computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), and a suite of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tools, to investigate the changes in the human brain resulting from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption in adult patients with a first presentation of a glioblastoma (GBM) following a maximal safe surgical resection and standard chemo-radiation with temozolomide (TMZ) protocol and ready for the maintenance phase of the Stupp protocol with TMZ.
Sleep is critical to human health, but insufficient and disrupted sleep caused by sleep apnea are common and have a major impact on brain health. However, there is still much that is not known about how sleep apnea damages the brain and what can be done to fix this. The Brain Changes in Sleep Apnea Study will look at the brain health of people with severe sleep apnea both before and after 4 months of treatment with a CPAP machine. Pre- and post-CPAP treatment, 80 participants w...
